1. My parents said that it wasn't a good idea to put up those pictures.
2. For once, I agree with them. Embarrassing lah. XD
Watched The Dark Knight with Carmen and Li Wern today, at Melbourne Central. It's ........... quite good. But erm, heheh, a bit scary. And sad. Most definitely sad.
But the scary parts right. Like, when one of the fake Batmans got slammed on the Mayor's window? Like, you know, you didn't see it coming, that kind of thing? I totally went "ohmygoodness" OUT LOUD. A few times. XP
I wish I could remember what the prequel to that was about. Batman Returns, right? Can't remember a thing. Oh well.
DURING DRAMA RIGHT.
I tell you, some, and here, I stress the word SOME, Singaporeans are suuuuuuuper lame, JUST IN TERMS OF THE JOKES THEY MAKE, mind you. No offense meant, really. It's EXTREMELY FUNNY and entertaining in a lame way.
So. During drama, we split off into groups for this term's exam thingy. I'm in a group with Jason, Randy, Jeffrey and Meg. We were throwing around ideas, things to do for our presentation thingy. Jason said something quite lame (can't remember what it was now), and we were all saying that he's being DAMN LAME. And Jason's from Malaysia, by the way.
And then Jeffrey goes:
"Ohmygod, Jason, you should be in a wheelchair, because you're LAME".
*everyone looks at Jeffrey*
And then everybody starts laughing. It was highly amusing. =)
Oh, and a lot of people seem to know about the Talent Quest thing, so I'll just put it out there.. It's scheduled to be on the 5th of September, people, not the 15th of August. And I'm just in the process of working out WHERE this Talent Quest thing is going to be. Meeting with somebody tomorrow, to see if we can set a venue. *crosses fingers* And I'm organising it for charity, by the way.
The Oaktree Foundation.
If you haven't heard of it, it's a social aid and development organisation run entirely by young volunteers (under the age of 26) across Australia. They reach out to A LOT of people in developing nations, and they were the ones who ran the End Child Slavery Campaign. This time, the campaign is "Oneday", and the significance of it is that all it takes is ONE DAY to change someone's life. The money goes to the world's most HIV/AIDS infected region (where up to 60% of people live with HIV/AIDS), the KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa, where Oaktree's partnership organisation, GOLD (Generations of Leaders Discovered) empowers young people to become peer educators, and educate their community about this disease. It takes just $15 to educate a young person for life.
By the way, the 15th of August is the Mixer Party, which is organised by the Trinity College Foundation Studies Student Committee. $10 per entry, which buys a drink and some food, if I'm not mistaken. But look out for the posters and e-mails they're sending around. Complete details should be publicized by next week. It's a chance for the February Intake students to mix with the July Intake students and have a bit of fun. =)

Sometimes you have to detach yourself from people to find out who you truly are, and who you truly can be.
